No pictures of the advent progress today, but I will get some up this week. The weekend was very arty for me. I now have angels on Mom’s advent calendar – the basic scrapbook paper shapes anyway. Yes, a different angel for each day. Next I’ll paint their hair. Then I can move from the table and start the outlining, doodling, embellishing… Remind me why I decided to do this…
|Because of Christ Jesus I am…
I also finished 3 more backgrounds for the 2015 calendar I’m making, and did a challenge page in my art journal:
I used watercolor pencils in my Dylusions Journal and finished with my waterbrush. I don’t usually do pages this quickly, but the prompt really spoke to me.
We had a great service in church this morning, and now I’ve got a dozen ideas for pages and such swirling in my head. There is not enough time in the day!
Hubby and I also got a special word from a church member: his – he will see the doors that have been closed come open because he has FAVOR from God; mine – I have a destiny that will be fulfilled; I was almost destroyed but I have come through.
Wow! I have come through a bunch of stuff, and that was the message today: coming through the storm & that God has a destination for us.
Prayer: Beloved Jesus, because of You, I am alive, saved, loved, free, healed. I am a child of the King, forgiven, made clean and heaven-bound. I am at peace. I am whole. There is no other who can offer so much to one so unworthy! Help me to live each day in full appreciation of the marvelous gift Father God gave us – YOU!by
